The wedding of a young parliamentary candidate is beset by difficulties: the gold Mercedes carrying the bride and groom is buried by snow and the picturesque church they eventually arrive at after a host of setbacks is not the one booked for the ceremony. With no best man or guests, and only their neurotic parents and the priest of the church in attendance, the couple have no choice but to postpone their lavish wedding and find a way to survive for as long as they are snowed in. The presence of the Other One in the same stifling space will be the catalyst for a solution, leading the family to rally together as a group with common convictions, interests, and aspirations. Faced with the threat of the Other One, the group builds an invisible wall to keep him out.
Penny Fylaktaki approaches the story of a ruined wedding with caustic humour and a penetrating eye, explore the social pathologies, in Greece and elsewhere, that define anything that is different – whether it comes from within us or from outside – as a threatening virus or problem that must be isolated so that the ‘normal’ homogeneity is not disturbed.
